Time For Stitching

I got a wonderful surprise in the mail yesterday! Carol sent me a beautiful PIF floss ring symbolizing September 11th. I just love it so much! Thank you for making my day a little brighter, Carol! We must both like our decks for making pictures because I noticed her pic of the floss ring is almost identical to mine! LOL!



Here is a picture of my finished Good Times that I was able to complete before leaving for the coast! This was one of my focus pieces for September and now with so much of the month still left I feel like I should add another piece to take it's place!



It's a good thing that actual construction does not start on our neighborhoods until December 31st because I promised DH I would slow down on my cross stitch orders for a bit! I don't need many charts but I would hate to have to begin before I have everything!

We had such wonderful Autumn like days for awhile and now the high temps and humidity have returned! Fortunately, it is supposed to cool back down within the next several days! Hopefully those nicer days will stick around next time!

Beautiful finish, Sherry! I love the sentiment as well.

What a nice gift Carol sent you. A special treasure for sure.

I'm ready for cooler weather, too, but it seems so far away! :(

Congratulations on a lovely finish!
What a great design and one I hadn't seen before.
The floss ring from Carol is so nice and having just received an exchange package from her I know just how lovely her stitching is.
